What feature ideas do you have for Social Fixer?

Move to a certain day or until "last seen" in news feeds by auto-clicking Older Posts

If I haven't been to Facebook for a few days, it's a pain to scroll down, show more, scroll down, show more, etc to get to where I left off. Add a feature to skip directly to a certain day, showing all posts in between.

        It seems that the way to get usable behavior would be to have the post at the TOP of the page be from some point in the past, and then the BOTTOM of the page would have the most recent posts.

        Would this be possible by getting Facebook to load to the timepoint in question, and then a SocialFixer command would reverse the ordering of the posts on the page? (As a programmer, this sounds really really hard, if not impossible. But maybe better programmers than me can figure it out!)

        YES!! Please let me log on at the point where I logged off last, and read the oldest messages first, until I reach the current messages!!!

        Marking the messages as "read" doesn't work at all! They always reappear. That only works on my lists, on a limited basis.

        Also why does social flixir automatically take me to top if I am where I want to be, say 6 hours ago and I click on the red wrench to turn it back on--extremely frustrating on both items

        social fixer does not send your page to the top ;'when you open options and it says you need to refresh for changes to take effect ;YOU refreshing the page makes facebook take it to top.....

        if you make a change 'it wont show that change till you refresh but you dont have to refresh ;';you can keep the 6 hrs back n work back to whenever you wish and ;next time you refresh it will use ;the new setting ...hope this helps!

        this is not what I am really interested in but it would allow me to post.
        After installing why do I have to go thru endless clicking of "More posts" instead of automatically going to more posts at the bottom of the page.

        you dont ;;inside social fixer is an option by default that stops the auto scrollin which is why you not have to keep clickin the next page ..untick that check box an it will auto scroll down as normal....U can also in area that says auto clck so many times change that to a larger number and it will scroll down so many for you ;automatically instead OR you could use both ....uncheck box so it auto scrolls when go to bottom and also load a few more pages worth to begin with/

        under options in social fixer you can change the auto click option to a large number like 25 and then it will scroll way the heck back for you 'this is ideal if you dont mind waiting a few mins for all the pages to roll back,,, but not ideal if ya wanna refresh fv alot n want speed...'I did this idea for farmville and then set up diff tabs for diff items and then it would have show in tabs it found 15 of this item and 27 of this item in another tab and on top in social fixer control panel change to one tab n handle those matters and then next to handle them 'can do in order of importance to you vs having to go by ;time or order

        Of course, if people just used the features already built into BFB/Social Fixer, to mark posts as read they wouldn't show up and clog up the screen, so going through old posts would be quicker...

        Still, it looks like a sound idea but I'm not sure how much effort would be involved in producing the code required. Given that there are already over 500 votes for this idea I'm not going to waste my votes on it though (it has sufficient publicity/backing as it is), I think that there are other better ideas which could be more easily implemented.

        This would be a great option. I may know I read or commented on a post on a certain day, but often it doesn't even show up in Timeline to select it. I get a truncated view of everything more than a couple of days old.

        This idea is now completely reductant thanks to Facebook Timeline Profiles. Of course, Matt, more refined Timeline controls would be welcome when the change hits.

        This is an awesome idea list by : date, friend : or any one in a list (ie: family, fun, links,ect)

        Yes, it would be nice to be able to jump to a date in the older posts instead of having to take the time to slowly scroll backwards until you find it.

        I just set BFB to go grab 30 pages worth of stuff. I open Chrome and just let it go for a few minutes. I can then scroll to the bottom and start ticking things off just fine. As you clear them, the rest drop down so there's no scrolling or anything. Really simple.

        Or sometimes I need to remember a certain date...so checking what i did that day on my fb seems like the easiest things to do...but....it takes forever! and what if it was a couple of months ago? if instead of "see more"...there were page numbers to jump ahead to like myspace used to be. that would be nice!
